Severe decay can impact the growth and development of their adult teeth. Preventive dentistry can help to prevent extensive treatment for any dental conditions that may develop, and help your children keep their natural teeth healthy as long as possible.
These habits are just as important to adults, as studies have shown that your oral health is linked to your body’s health and well-being overall. Oral diseases can interfere with eating, speaking, self-esteem and have even been linked to serious health concerns like diabetes or heart conditions.
The most effective preventative dentistry Adelaide combines your oral hygiene routine at home with regular dentist visits and counselling from dental professionals, like our team at Burnside Dental Practice. You also need to continue with regular brushing, flossing, and eating a balanced diet in between dentist appointments to ensure you’re looking after your teeth. You should be brushing your teeth daily with fluoride toothpaste and replacing your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months. Flossing helps to clean out the tight spaces between your teeth that a brush can’t reach and should be performed daily.
